Mark your calendars for Wikibon's next Peer Incite Tue, January 22nd.
Recorded video / audio from the Peer Incite:
Often rumored, but rarely discussed, governments around the globe have pushed the extremes of storage capacity and data availability requirements to support security and defense applications. Government agencies, and not commercial businesses, have been the users demanding exascale capacities. However, companies such as Facebook, Zynga, Pandora and Shutterfly, which are on average less than 10 years old, are fast approaching the hyper-scale storage requirements of government agencies. Are these young, but fast-growing companies harbingers of future storage requirements at more traditional commercial enterprises? Join the Wikibon community together with Russ Kennedy, Vice President of Cleversafe, as we discuss how to prepare for hyper-scale storage requirements in your enterprise and answer questions, such as:
- What are the commercial applications and use cases that will require hyper-scale storage?
- When will hyper-scale storage requirements become a concern for commercial applications in traditional enterprises?
- Can replication be eliminated in hyper-scale storage?
- Is it possible to backup hyper-scale storage?
- With erasure encoding is there still a need for backup?
- Can data dispersal approaches serve all data reuse cases?
Call in details below:
